Is that contentious?
Play must restart. A crooked line out isn't a valid restart

It makes sense because otherwise you could try kick the ball directly out or not 10 from a restart kick to end the game, which isn't really fair.

Not knowing what game you saw but there was one incidence of this at RWC as well.

A penalty try can only be awarded when some act of foul play denies a team of a probable try or forces a try to be scored away from the middle of the posts. If advantage is being played then it should normally be let play out; subject to what the foul play call was for. If a TMO or assistant referee made a call then play should continue and if required then it can be reviewed.
